Only in Nashville

Oh Nashville!  How I love thee!  Your sweet tea which you pour so freely, (and usually with free refills!)  Your music that streams out of every open bar.  The upright bass found so easily.  The smells of freshly made BBQ sauce.  The home place where songs like "Isabella," and "The Broken ones," were brought to life.  Where Blake and I recorded vocals for "I will."  Where I found love at first sight by this cute dude jogging down the street with...wait for it... yes an adorable dog! (Obviously it wasn't mutual love at first sight. Dangit!)  Oh Nashville.  Thank you for having us....I hope to someday move here and nestle in your fried okra and possibly move in next door to Loveless cafe.  Oh Nashville, send some cute Cowboys my way. (Preferably between the ages of 25-33 thank you).

And not to be too picky Nashville, but if they could be taller than me as well?
Ok, Ok...sorry.  I went off on a tangent.

Here is a photo album of Nashville so far! :)


Walking down town.  Everyone is so sweet and polite here.  Only in Nashville is there a guitar the size of 5 of me in the window of a boot shop.


Only in Nashville does the sweet tea flow like wine.  Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano.  I'm talking about a little place called....Nashvillllleeee.


Only in Nashville do the waiters give the ladies the menu first and take the ladies orders first too!

Only in Nashville does the band playing at the local bar - in between songs - single me out for drinking water and THEN cover a Blake Shelton song about drinking!  If that doesn't make you smile ear to ear you have no soul.  (If you haven't heard "Drink on it" by Shelton...well...get on it!) Only in Nashville is there an awkward beaver statue outside of the bar.  

Only in Nashville 

Thank you for having us music city!  I'm off to explore more of you.

  1. Umm, I think that should be "flock like the swallows of San Juan Capistrano." It would be totally amazing if fish landed in the trees there! :-)

    1. "Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano." is a Dumb and Dumber quote.

    2. Haha, she baited the silly hook and got me! Thanks for the reference, Jalapeno. It's been 18 years since I saw that movie.

      I was beginning to think there was more than just water in Dia's glass.

  7. Great pics! I've always wanted to go to Nashville and see the Grande Ole Opry but never have;a lot of history in that city. And that list of the type of guy you like..you mean we're never gonna be together??!! NOOOOOO! Hahaha I don't fit any of the criteria, so I guess it's a good thing I live in reality, huh? :) It's good to see y'all are having fun!
